Tottenham supremo Daniel Levy has moved to reassure the club’s new boss Nuno Espirito Santo on the future of club captain Harry Kane.
The England captain and talisman has been heavily linked with a move away from the club this summer as he seeks a new challenge in his career.
Manchester City are reported to have made a bid in the region of £100million for the 27-year-old, who has been on the books of the North London club for the entirety of his professional career.
Kane is currently in action for his nation at Euro 2020 but it is thought that he is keen for a resolution to his future whenever the tournament reaches its conclusion.
A report in the Mail now outlines that new Spurs boss Nuno has been given assurances by club chairman Levy that he will not accept any bids for the striker below the valuation of £150million.
It is unlikely that any club will be able to finance a deal for the star striker – who has scored 221 goals for the club across a glittering career – should Levy stick to his valuation of the player.
Kane’s desire to leave the club is seemingly fuelled by his desire to win trophies elsewhere, having not landed any silverware in North London.
When asked by Gary Neville if he believed his career was at a crossroads at the end of the club season, Kane responded: “I think so. I think it’s definitely a conversation to be had with the club.
“Yeah, like you say, I want to be playing in the biggest games. The biggest moments.

“Like, this season I’m there watching the Champions League, watching the English teams in there doing amazing. They are the games that I want to be involved in.
“I want to be in them games. So for sure, it’s a moment in my career where I have to kind of reflect and see where I’m at and have a good, honest conversation with the chairman. I hope that we can have that conversation.
“I’m sure that he’ll want to set out the plan of where he sees it but ultimately it’s going to be down to me and how I feel and what’s going to be the best for me and my career this moment in time.”
When asked specifically about his relationship with Levy, the striker continued: “He’s been great with me if I’m totally honest. I mean, he’s always rewarded me with contracts. Like obviously I signed maybe a four or five-year deal when I was 21 but I’ve done well so he’s added to that. He’s been great with me.
“He’s been fair with me. He’s never kind of just held me on to a contract and said ‘No, I’ve paid you that. You’re going to stay on that’.
“So, we’ve always had a good relationship, but yeah, I’m not sure how that conversation will go if I’m honest, but you know what it’s like as players you don’t know what the chairman is thinking.
“I don’t know, I mean he might want to sell me. He might be thinking ‘If I could get 100 million for you, then why not?’
“Do you know what I mean? I’m not going to be worth that for the next two or three years.”
